IMG_7935– Steam pumpkin till soft and set aside to cool

– Mash the pumpkin using fork until fine, add in coconut milk and mix well, set aside

– Sift cake flour and rice flour twice

– Mix egg yolks and sugar in a bowl, whisk till sugar has dissolved

– Add in oil, salt and pumpkin coconut mixture, mix well

– Sift in flour mixture and whisk well

– In another bowl, beat the egg whites and lemon juice/vinegar till frothy. Add in sugar gradually and beat until approaching stiff peaks (meringue stand straight with a little curve at the tip) or till stiff peaks (this stage is a bit difficult to fold with egg yolk mixture)

– Use whisk to loosen the egg yolk batter a bit, then take 1/3 of meringue and use a hand whisk to mix well with egg yolk batter

– Fold in 1/2 of meringue and use a silicone spatula, gently fold with egg yolk batter till slightly combined. Fold in the balance meringue and gently fold till well combined

– Pour the batter from a considerable height into cake pan, lightly shake it left and right to level the cake, then gently bang the cake pan on the table top to release air bubbles

– Bake at pre-heated oven at 150C at center rack for 25 mins and 160C for 20-25 mins. (I off the top heat element and on it back during the last 15 mins) * i baked the cake on second lowest rack for 32 mins at 180 degrees C. Remove the cake pan from oven, drop it from high side to prevent the cake shrink too much during cool process
送入预热至150摄氏度烤箱、中层,烤25分钟,转160摄氏度烤20-25分钟 (原食谱此时将上火关了,然后在最后15分钟在重新开启)*我用了烤箱倒数第二层 180摄氏度,烤了32分钟。 蛋糕出炉后,立马从高处往下掉以免蛋糕在冷却过程中大量收缩

– Turn the cake pan upside down and cool completely before remove from the cake pan
